Benefits and services

The Strategic Focus and the four guiding pillars inform all ELIA's activities. 

Our aims are primarily realised through: 
  • Events: regular large conferences, small-size regional gatherings, professional development seminars and virtual meetings 
  • Projects: thematic initiatives, developing innovative practices in higher arts education, always involving ELIA members 
  • Services: advocacy, matchmaking for international projects, showcasing institutions, promotion and endorsement of members' events 
  • Dissemination: publications, conference proceedings, a platform for regular updates on funding opportunities and job adverts


The ELIA activities are designed to respond and cater to the needs of art schools at all levels. While leaders can focus on strategic discussions with peers at the Leadership Symposium, teachers can present and discuss best practices and innovative approaches at the ELIA Academy.

If you would like to find out more about the different types of membership categories and how to join ELIA, please visit the Join us page.
